Julian Smith’s career in dental technology has spanned over 30-years. During this time, he successfully built a commercial laboratory, with a solid reputation for providing prosthetic solutions for complex dentures cases with removable prosthetics, chrome cobalt frameworks and implant retained removable and fixed prosthodontics.
Furthermore, his breadth and depth of experience has developed through supporting the teaching and learning of post-graduate students in Birmingham, Manchester and Worcester. This has afforded him a unique set of skills and knowledge that enables him to support both clients and patients during the construction of challenging cases.
His own recent continuing professional development has seen him complete a Diploma in Clinical Dental Technology with the Royal College of Surgeons (England), in which he gained a distinction. He believes this training and education will allow him to provide even higher-level care for both his referral clients and patients alike.
